Student Opportunity Fund & Support Services

Students work hard each and every day to be the best scholars, employees, friends, family members and people they can be. Managing multiple priorities can be a challenge.  There are times, circumstances, situations and events that may prompt a student to need assistance. Whether you are looking for long-term support, occasional guidance or financial support, Hendricks Chapel is here to help.

Below is a list of our support services for students, as well as a list of our campus partners who offer support programs and aid. We invite you to reach out to us with your needs.  Contact Hendricks Chapel with questions at 315.443.2901 or


Food Pantry

The Hendricks Chapel Food Pantry is stocked with food and personal care items, available to all students with a valid Syracuse University or SUNY ESF ID. Students can visit the pantry as needed, up to once a week, dependent on the unique needs of each student. To learn more, visit the Food Pantry website.


Financial Support

Unexpected and difficult situations can happen to anyone at any time.  Through the generous support of donors, Hendricks Chapel is able to assist students experiencing financial hardship. Mini-grants are available to meet a wide range of needs and to provide access to opportunities. Categories of support include food, clothing, emergency travel, emergency health care and other non-academic expenses. Our goal is to ensure access to academic enrichment opportunities to all students that would otherwise be unavailable to them. Hendricks Chapel works with partners across campus to ensure students with needs receive prompt and effective assistance. To inquire about these grants, contact Hendricks Chapel at
